St Patricks Day Gifts / February 18, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
If a big loud and lively celebration of this holiday is to your liking you will have the luck of the Irish on your side if you take a few steps in advance. To keep things relatively simple consider basic appetizers green beer and plenty of green derbies vests and Kiss Me buttons. A local Irish restaurant should be able to help you with the appetizers. Some hearty Irish stew is always a hit too. Do not forget to turn on some traditional Irish folk music and set the tone so your guests can cut a rug and dance a jig. Do expect to welcome up the sun the next day though. This kind of party can turn out to be a bigger hit than you might expect.

As a part of the celebration Many Irish people wear a bunch of shamrock on their lapels or caps on St. Patrick s Day while children wear tricolored (green white and orange) badges. Girls traditionally wore green ribbons in their hair (many still do). A three-leafed Shamrock clover was used by St. Patrick to represent the trinity like father son and holy spirit; also shamrock was considered lucky by Irish people. The shamrock was used by the Irish as a mark of nationalism when the English invaded the Celtics.
